Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This was the book that started it all for Joan Wester Anderson! It is her first book in her series where she shares inspiring true experiences of ordinary people who believe that they have met and been helped by angels. And it spent 55 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list.

The book began as a personal pilgrimage for Joan when, on Christmas Even in 1983, her son and his roommate were rescued from certain death. In the midst of subzero temperatures and gale-force winds, a man appeared and brought them to safety...and then disappeared. Unseen by others, he left no tracks beside theirs in the snow. Grateful and intrigued, she set out to explore an explanation for this incident only to discover that many others have had similar experiences.

From the Inside Flap

If you believe in angels, then you will rejoice in this thrilling collection of stories attesting to angelic intervention in human affairs. If you do not believe, you may find yourself wavering as you read true stories of intervention. This exhilarating book offers overwhelming evidence that heavenly beings are very much with us -- combating evil, bringing news, warning of danger, consoling us in our suffering. It may even help you remember a time in our own life when an angel walked beside you.

More About the Author

Joan Wester Anderson began writing in 1973, as a way to bring home a second income for her family of seven. "It was to be a temporary situation while I figured out what talents I had," Joan says. However, she never got around to deciding; instead she slipped into magazine feature writing, and did an occasional book,too. "The books never sold very well--my mother sometimes bought a copy---but they gave the illusion that I was somewhat of a professional, which was important for my self-image."

In 1992, Joan realized that her children had all finished college and moved away. Perhaps it was time for her to do the same. One of her sons had experienced an amazing miracle, so she decided to write one last book in thanksgiving to God, and then return to college to prepare for her next career. Instead, her "thanksgiving book" became a New York Times best-seller, WHERE ANGELS WALK, and some twenty years later, it has sold almost two million copies.

Joan is widely regarded as one of the two writers who began the "angel craze," and spoke around the country as experts and talk show guests. Today she is the author of nine books on angels and miracles, and continues to send out stories to her mailing lists of "angel lovers."

Recently Joan discovered that she has five grandchildren, all extremely adorable, and is currently cutting back on her work to spend more time with them.

Where Angels Walk is an unforgettable book of God's love, help and intervention in our lives through the love of His Angels. All the stories are true and unbelievably remarkable. God has told us, "Ask and ye shall receive", and that includes the asking for help for our loved ones and for ourselves.
This is a book that will renew your faith and reaffirm God's love for us. It is at the darkest times of our lives, when we feel alone and abandoned, that we are loved the most. Help is there and we just have to ask for it. As Joan Anderson says, "...that, whatever their failings, God is holding them gently in the palm of His hand."
Reading the numerous stories, you will discover that angels can take many forms and not just the heavenly beings we were taught about as children.
Read this book to renew your spirit, increase your faith and to uplift your life. You will NOT be disappointed. This book is a gem. And remember that you are loved and that miracles do indeed happen!

It just makes perfect sense to me when I read the angel stories in this book. How powerful, yet so gentle these angels are. It was so inspiring to read each story. Thanks to Joan Wester Anderson for sharing her gift of writing and speaking.

I sent it to an inmate I correspond with in prison whom I have been evangelizing to and he couldn't thank me enough. He said he couldn't put the book down and that it confirmed his desire for proof that God does bend down to earth often or sends his messangers. He was so impressed with the book he lent it to his cell-mate and he is evangelizing himself. I couldn't be more pleased. Our God is an awesome God who gives proof and help and guidance. May we all pray that divine providence will always be with us. Thank you Joan Wester Anderson. You make my job of sharing my faith so much easier. May God continue to bless you.

It's wonderful to read stories of others who have encountered God's help in situations. I am someone who has had his interventions many times during times. God in heaven has forewarned me and even sent me an angel that disappered after saving me from drowning. Disappearing after they help is a sign of a heavenly visitor. Funny how the lifeguard ignored me at 7yrs old but God didn't after I prayered to him in the water. I haven't ever forgotten it. You won't forget reading these amazing experiences. I hope to one day write a book on my personal experiences. This book will renew your faith.

Format: Paperback
I received this book from a friend, then picked it up to read a few years later, after I'd done Scriptural research on angels for a project. I enjoyed the book. It was certainly an easy read, because of the format of many short stories. And I appreciated the whole approach on which it was based -- asking people everywhere for their own true stories of encounters with angels. What we read about angels in the Bible tells us how they quickly move in and out of people's lives, often to carry a message or to help in time of need (Peter's prison scene, one of my favorites!). The accounts in this book seem to jibe with those Biblical accounts. But more than that, angels show how God takes care of us, and that's the message I get from this book.

Miracles do happen, you just have to look for them sometimes. and pray for them. some of the stories make me cry because it is truly heart-touching how God & his angels protect us and we wonder why bad things happen to others? but we aren't to question God for he has everything planned.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By first words...God's breath on August 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
Over the last 16 years, Joan Wester Anderson's writings are mostly about angels as means of intervention in our lives. Some of her stories originate from personal experiences, others from those who shared their experiences, only to portray the presence of something, someone special coming into their lives and bringing about a sense of peace.

In one of her stories, on a snowy winter day, the rescue of her son comes to light through a mysterious event, and a stranger who brings her son through a nearly catastrophic event. Not that anyone actually saw a winged angelic spirit; it was more of realizing the presence of someone who suddenly came into his life and helped him through a situation.

Reading these short stories may touch your heart enough to have you recall an event which seemed hopeless.......until a special happening brought someone close enough for you to feel God's presence in the form of a messenger who bears an angelic character.

If you've ever come through a car accident safely, despite damage to the car, or if you've stepped away from something that looked dangerous, perhaps, you, too, were walking with an angel. Maybe, even if you look deeper, someone was in need of help, and you were the angel in their life. Don't be too surprised if you've had several such experiences.

Today, these stories are syndicated and featured in several publications. The message is this: You are not alone, and the angels are walking with you!
